It must be a time of life thing, leading to all those philosophical meanderings.

For here I am, riding my bike round Ethiopia, and today reaching the age that my dad was when he died. Makes you think.
Is it a significant day or not? I don't know.
Anyway, quite a while ago I wrote a piece about him, for the sake of it and for a bike magazine. So in view of the day today, I've added it to this blog, but up the front so as not to be in the flow of the journey's updates.
Or under 'archives', May 5th, 2009.
It's a bit of a long-term work-in-progress, and I just realised I don't have the full-length version here with me. So it'll be updated when I return home, and maybe at other random times as well.
